Excerpt from The Theory of Effect: Embracing the Contrast of Light and Shade, of Colour and Harmony

Without understanding these rules, a man, how ever well he may draw, can never be called an artist. Rembrandt, by his consummate knowledge of effect, gave that magic representation of light and shade, that raised him to the highest rank in his profession, which, with his deficient skill as a draughtsman, he could never hope to obtain.

Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.3in.Excerpt from The Theory of Effect: Embracing the Contrast of Light and Shade, of Colour and HarmonyThe art of drawing furnishes an example which cannot be found in any other profession. There is no amusement more delightful, no accomplishment more useful, no art more elegant, or no profession more advantageous, than the practice of the Fine Arts. Drawing brings neither regret, anxiety or fatigue of body, however much followed. Almost every other pursuit leaves a weariness when closely applied to; and to none does there belong that pleasing and enervating effect which is to be found in the practice of the heaven-born art of drawing. This art can be practised in the sick chamber without disturbing the inmate; it can be practised in the drawing room, whilst others may be reading or studying without interfering with them in the least; and independent of all this, it is one of the cheapest of the many amusements which abound. If we consider drawing in the light of an acquirement, where shall we find one more elegant or more usefulAbout the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
